    Yes, and compared to Ottoman empire, it was also peaceful, that however is irrelevant to your claim and subjective. If Iraq at war means 'peaceful' you've just entered the realm of doublespeak where up is down and war means peace. That's sophistry.

    I have a degree in history. I know the phrase. I also know you can't change it. So statements like this:

    I think we should of never invaded in the first place. I think we should of never debaathified the country.
    Are pointless. You brought up bush telling us what we shouldn't have done. Reminds of the captain obvious episodes from South Park.

    I think we should of pulled out from the get go, we have had no business being there. Yes Obama is to fault in this.
    Ok. So you agree that the pull out should have been done and do you believe we should just let Isis sit? How do you feel about the 1500 troops?

    Yep, that was it. The guy (or gal) that I bagged had indicated support for an Islamic state - I swear to Allah that is true.

    BTW, why should only "poor folks" outside of the US get taxpayer funded bounties for dead "terrorists"? I would gladly bag an advocate (or two) for an Islamic state should I encounter them.

    I would point to his broken AK first, then raise the eyebrows a couple times with a smile. well if they let us poor Americans get the money for such. They would call us Mercs or Bounty Hunters. So they can't have that. We would be considered professional likes.

    I guess I have been building up to this statement for quite awhile, months. But I wanted to give the president a chance before I spout off. My sentiments now having seen this send in a few troops here and a few troops late followed by a few more until you have over 500,000 which gives the enemy time to adjust, learn and change tactics and strategy to the next move they know is coming.

    Okay, either do what it takes now to win and drive ISIS out of Iraq quit this pussy footing gradual buildup of troops and gradual escalating the bombing. Limited anything hasn't won anything. Either do what is necessary or do nothing. Either take what actions necessary and if it means sending in the troops in force and increasing the sortees to a 1,000 a day, do it or bring the boys home and let the chips over there fall where they may.

    Engage to win not to delay or quit.
    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line. But for way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.

    The thing is, that policy would make us as evil as them, perhaps worse. They advocate killing "infidels" and promise a special bounty (only?) for those that die in the process.

    I believe that we have tried that bounty idea on a few leaders of the Jihad but, in order to collect that bounty, one then places themselves high on the list of "infidels" and likely would never last long enough to enjoy the bounty
